If you are lucky enough to have the space and can afford an acoustic piano you are well on your way. There is nothing like the elegance and tone of a well maintained acoustic piano.
If you are considering the purchase of an acoustic piano it is wise to seek out a reputable dealer to help you with your choice.
A Digital Alternative.
Fortunately for those of us with space and money limitations there are hundreds of makes and models of digital pianos.

Still more choices..
